BUYER BEWARE! Do no do business. You either (i) won’t receive your beer (ii) it will be damaged (iii) won’t receive a refund.

The initial stop here was to check out Decadent Ales, till we saw this place basically sharing and entrance. So before settling in at the bar from Decadent we decided to peruse the aisles of Half Time just for shits n' gigs. Looking around there was plenty of beers on the shelves, some of which I knew I could get back home in PA but some others that peaked my interest till seeing that some had been on the shelves a bit longer than I'd prefer. The place was pretty large, it reminded me a lot of the Beers of the World store in Rochester actually. There weren't a lot of customers or people working there that night so I can't really say much about the service. Overall it's a cool spot, I would probably frequent the place if I lived nearby. My only issue is being mindful of bottle and canning dates on the stuff.

Huge warehouse store in same building as Decadent Ales. Increadable selection as well as 22 diverse and mostly local craft choices on tap for growler fills. Great place.

This is a huge warehouse that carries every beer available in the area - both foreign and domestic. Everything is available singly or in 6-packs - a great place to pick up a wide variety of beers you've never had but don't want to make a 6-pack commitment to. A great place to find things no one else has. The downside to the vast selection is that not everything moves - you have to pay attention to bottle age. They also have a 22 tap growler fill station. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Because it's a warehouse, the vibe is somewhat cold.

Great stop to check out, I really got into trouble at Half Time. As an out of towner, I enjoyed a wide range of brews that weren't widely distributed. Though some price tags were missing, overall things were labeled well. Employees were friendly and approachable. I will not hesitate to return the next time that I am in the area.

Great, knowledgeable staff, tastes at the growler fills, they always have the new and unusual, wide in scope and deep in product. only possible negative is that you can't be warm and intimate in a superstore environment. It's difficult to get in and out of there in a short period of time as there is so much to see, which is a big complement.

I first became aware of Half Time in Mamaroneck about a year ago. Half Time boasts the "Largest Selection of Beer in the World" and based on my experience that is probably an accurate statement. The store has the feel of a big box store with whole 30 to 40 foot rows dedicated to beers from "Belgium," "Germany," "Craft," etc. I have been able to work my way through more than half of the top rated 100 Germany beers on this website because of their huge complement of offerings, as well as craft beers from top breweries in more than a dozen states and countries (and counting). It is true that Half Time is pricier than a standard beer distributorship, but it is important to recognize that this undoubtedly offsets the cost of the overhead involved in maintaining a remarkable selection of beers.

Finally got to visit this place. While the selection was phenomenal, a lot of the prices were CRIMINAL. I've never seen such a markup before, this place was more expensive than DeCicco's! Beverage stores are typically a little less expensive than supermarkets, delis, gas stations, etc. Just to give an example, a six pack of Carlsberg Elephant was $14.39! Not that I was interested in buying it, but there's no way its worth that much. And I could tell that the beer that seemed reasonably priced was outdated/old. Amazing store but too much money, I won't be returning any time soon.

I rated the quality as 2.25 based on price, not sure how the ratings for this work. The service I marked a three. Even though nobody asked to help me, its not something I care that much about as I prefer to explore on my own.

This has the vibe and feel of a big box store. The selection here is amazing. Found everything that I wanted and more. Plenty of local and national breweries represented. The prices here tend to be a bit higher than other places around it, but I suppose that is the premium paid for one stop shopping. Certainly the place I would go to if I am in the area.

Great selection and service. I love the ability to buy virtually any beer as a single. My complaint is that prices are high but maybe it only seems that way to me as a visitor from MD.

Awesome place. Great beer selection, singles for sale- make your own 6 pack. Home brewing section, meads ciders. Beers on Tap for Growler filling with free tasting before committing, Some beers were a little pricier, Prairie Bomb was $11 and $8 down the street at DeCicco's. Overall great place.

I stopped in on my way back from NY to CT. The amount of beer here is amazing. I was able to purchase many beers that I dont have access to in CT. I also bought and filled a growler, where the staff was very helpful. Be careful on some of the bottle dates for IPAs, if you are the type to drink "super fresh" beers, non issue to me but I did see some 2014s.

Half time has a great selection of beer and a decent home brew section. Their knowledge of beer is fantastic however their home brew skills are mediocre. Overall a great place, the employees are incredibly helpful.

This is a grocery store for beer. I've only been there a couple of times and haven't spoken to the staff, so i can't rate their knowledge. Well organized place with a great selection.

Hands down my favorite beer store, if not favorite my place on Earth and you're not likely to find a larger selection of beer anywhere. Huge sales floor with knowledgeable and friendly staff on hand to assist the novice to the most experienced craft beer enthusiasts. Large, rotating tap selection available with growler service and there are often free tasting events on weekends. This place also has craft soda and cigars although I only ever go there for beer. If you can go to only 1 source for craft beer ever again, this is the place.

Big selection but the prices are at least 25% more expensive than other comparable stores. They don't carry anything that special that couldn't be found for less money somewhere else. No way id buy a beer from this place. I walked out empty handed based on price alone.
Nice little homebrew supply area though - just for essentials. I wouldn't get major supply, but big hop selection.
